"Born In The U.S.A." packaging prototype
Label (Cat #): – (–)
Country: USA
Release date (Original year): 1984 (1984)
As the "Born In The U.S.A." album was being prepared for release at the dawn of the compact disc era, a packaging standard had yet to be set. The plastic jewel-box was not initially the rule and cardboard CD package prototypes were made. As far as I know, three slightly different specimen of these were made. The album's track listing had yet to be finalized when these prototypes were designed; the outer packaging listed PINK CADILLAC and omitted NO SURRENDER and I'M GOING DOWN! Of course, this was just a packaging prototype, so no disc was included.
